It would be neat to retain the interesting look
of the rig while adding functionality.

Add a BFO on the IF freq. should be sufficient
for the RX side.

There is plenty of extra room in the cabinet
and the mods should be minimally invasive.

I hope to buy a FT-897D once we sell our house
and 10 acres here in Florida but even then it
would be fun to make SSB/DSB and AM contacts on
the modified BA!

I am having trouble viewing and printing the
DJVU manual from BAMA at the moment but have
to study the modulation scheme.  Don't know
if it will be as simple as the BC-696 mod or
a little more complex.
